I knew I’d struggle not having a job. I don’t like being bored. Boredom and sadness go hand in hand for me I’m sure it’s the same for most people. From the first few days of being off, I very quickly lost interest in things that, while I was working, I spent so much time craving. I had little interest in games (compared to normal, anyway. World of Warcraft was the only game that really kept my attention, and I’m even sick of that now.) I didn’t want to leave the house, which made me resent my dog because I had to leave the house to walk him. I didn’t want to do my coursework, I didn’t want to read. I didn’t want to listen to music. I just sat there.
I say didn’t, I still don’t want to do most of these things. I’m listening to music again, but I’d say 90% of my music listening-to is the same My Chemical Romance playlist on repeat. I still hate walking the dog, but that’s because he’s a pain in the arse, and wants to eat everything in sight. Continue reading
2020 looks very promising in terms of game releases. 2019 gave us some excellent games, but there weren’t many that made it into my collection, for various reasons. 2020 will be better – and by better I mean I’ll spend more money in 2020. Realistically though, I have such a huge backlog to clear I don’t really need to buy any new games but I’ve learnt by now that I have no willpower. I’m going to buy games. I’ve got a list of around 20 games I’m hoping to get my hands on this year, but seeing as I haven’t got a job, I’ve narrowed it down to 5. It wasn’t easy, but below are the 5 games I’m most excited for in 2020! Continue reading
I’ve been awake since 4am, and my mind is in overdrive. When I wrote this it was 8.04am on December 31st, 2019. Tomorrow is a new decade.
Up until this year, I’d have said my 20s were fantastic. I left school, something I’d been wanting to do since I started school. I went to university, I got a degree, I got a job in my chosen field. I went to New York with a show, I went to Dublin with a show, I went to London with a show. I had a few relationships, I made so many friends. I went to parties, I drank too much, I dressed ridiculously. I stopped throwing up after every meal. I listened to a lot of music. I met Matt. We travelled a lot. We got engaged. We bought a house. I went on my first Hen – Do. I still had my job. Continue reading
While my Keeshond puppy, Toby, is an adorable bundle of fluff who I love so much I want to squash him, he is also an absolute nightmare. In fact, looking after Toby has been the most challenging thing I’ve ever experienced and it still isn’t over. With housetraining, ABI training, obedience training and teaching him how to behave around other pets, I understand why people compare their puppies to human children.
Except the puppy can move around a lot faster a lot sooner…
